Well, I stand corrected, good on you. Much respect for being a single parent, I don't know how you guys (and gals) do it. Mine are 11, 9 and 6 and no way could I do it myself.

Sorry for the thread hijack.

I've never been inside the VN2000 primary but on others I have been into there is a shoe (Small plastic piece about 3 - 4 inches long) that can be adjusted to take up slack in the primary as it stretches. Have you consulted the manual about any adjustments?

No I havent consulted anyone, was just out for a ride the other day & noticed a different buzzing coming from the cover area. I also tried rocking the bike back & forth while in first gear & there is definitely some slop in the chain. But then I expect there to be. I havent exactly babied this bike & it has gotten worse since the resistor mod ! LOL
Its not big money ,{ $133/chain + $33 /gskt.} & I suspect it wouldnt be terrible to change either. I was just wondering if anyone had done it as yet?


BTW , mine are 29 & 24 !

Wow this thread got hijacked by a couple of meat heads talking about how wonderfuf thire are and not on topic. Kyrocket and smedlin if you doint like his questions doint read them. I know you two probley say some smart ass remark but i doint care.

rkd2.3 mine has a loud slap noise in the morning, and the noise come and goes. i am not too worried about. I think its part of the bike sole. Its been doing it for a few years now. i do belive there no ajusting of that chain. It streches after time and just loosens up and becomes chain slap.
